And here come the vital statistics:

Wheelbase 1040

Stays 385

Headangle 74

BB +25

And it feels good. It's a bit of a weird feeling - it rides almost as long as my 1065 Koxx, but the head angle is waaaay steeper so the front end is really sharp. Nice on the front wheel, but a bit "jumpy" for wheelswaps and the like. Nothing I won't get used to though. The overall shortness makes it nice and flicky too.

Overall very pleased. Might put a shorter stem on it to make it a bit shorter for a more streety ride, but I'm happy how it is smile.gif

Easton EA50's for the bars. Race Face Progidy stem.

The other bits you can't see are CK rear and Hope front hubs. Atomlab DHR rim on the front, RhynoLite on the back. And the seat is an old Orange one I've had lying in my garage for about 5 years, off an XC bike originally smile.gif

Oh, and 26" tubes because I couldn't be bothered buying new tubes tongue.gif

Yeah, that's right. Keep It Simple Single Speed (Tensioner). As far as I can tell, it works really nicely. It is possible to overtighten the chain tension (So the cranks won't spin), so it's not like one of these fixed tensioners that loses all tension after 10 minutes... It's good. Like everything on that bike. Except the back tyre which I may have to change already tongue.gif

I was waiting for that. They are Echo Urban forks, and they work better than anything else really. So I don't think I need different forks really...

Yeah well spotted! Clive machined it for me when he did the bike. He sold me the cranks, and machined them so that the KMC (wide) would fit, and took a bit off the outside for the 20t (Rather than the 22t). He even machined my spacers on the back down to get a perfect chainline. If that ain't service I don't know what is!
